We've yet to find a

working number for his father.

We've called friends.

She never talked about him,

or even mentioned

any brothers or sisters.

There's no relatives on file.

If we find a working

number for his father,

and he doesn't answer,

we'll leave a message.

The state will handle

funeral arrangements.

Check the file again.

The boy has a grandmother

in moorpark, colorado

on his mother's side.

I've been trying to call her, but she

hasn't been answering the phone.

I'll look again...

just prepare

the foster care paperwork,

in case she chooses

not to return our calls,

or decides not to take him in.

With him turning 18 next summer,

who knows where he'll end up.

? I can feel you

in the distance?

? I saw you glimmer

in the sun?

? But I can't stand

looking right at you?

? Wish you'd tell me

what I've done?

? Like a fire

that keeps on burning?

? And I keep trying

to blow it out?

? I don't wanna

keep on watching?

? It burns each time

I drink it down?

? I'm lost in

my weakness?

? I'm breaking

into pieces?

? Is anyone

waiting for me?

? On the other side

of the street??

? I need a lift

to take me home?

? I saw you standing

in the shadows?

? Watching over me

at night?

? I'm gonna swim

across this ocean?

? But I can't do it

on my own?

? I'm lost in

my weakness?

? I'm breaking

into pieces?

? Is anyone

waiting for me?

? On the other side

of the street??

? I need a lift

to take me home?

? How do I keep

moving on?

? If all that I love

is gone??

? I need a sign

to give me hope?

Can I help you?

Are you, uh, wallace russo?

That would be mrs. Wallace

to you, young man. And you are?

Your problem for

the next nine months.

I will not be disrespected

in my own home.

I don't care who you are

or what you want from me.

I'm only gonna ask

your name one more time.

You can stay out here

until you find out.

My name is Aldo russo.

You do speak.

Well, come in.

You're not what I expected.

Sorry to be a disappointment.

I didn't mean it like that.

Why don't you go eat your food

before it gets any

more cold than it is.

Can I just go to bed?

I thought there was supposed to

be a social worker with you.

I didn't expect you

to be alone.

Well, I am.

Your room is upstairs.

Hi, you reached Emilia.

sorry I...

- Mom!

- Aldo, I'm on the phone.


I, um...


This is so stupid.

I know you won't get this.

I just needed

to hear your voice.

I just wanted to...

you hungry?

Well, if you get hungry...

Can I sit down?

I was just getting up.

Go ahead. Finish.

Hi. I'm Lorri McGlocklin.

I'm Aldo's social worker.

I am so sorry I'm late.

I fully intended to...

- come in.

- Okay.

You know, miss scott

from the D.H.S in jersey,

she wasn't able to forward

me all of the information

in time for Aldo's arrival.

Doesn't help that

we are so understaffed.

- Please sit down.

- Oh, thank you.

Hi. Well, at any rate,

we're all caught up now,

and I apologize on our behalf.

We'll work together to make

this a smooth transition, okay?

Well, uh, why don't

we start with you.

- How did it happen?

- I'm sorry?

- The accident.

- That information wasn't released to you?

I didn't get all the details.

You know what? Mrs. Wallace,

if you don't mind,

- we can start someplace

else... - why do you care?!

I am trying to understand.

It doesn't matter!

I'm here and she's dead!

- She's dead!

- I just wanna understand what happened.


Mrs. Wallace,

it's very important that

this is something you wanna do,

in order to make

this relationship work.

Well, at the end of the day,
